Congrats all :beer:

I'm sorry to see the rest go :cry: I wouldn't want to be a judge.

Thank you judges, I know it must be hard.

Can't wait to see the next round!

Ooh, what a pretty sim, I might download her to play in my game if you don't mind :giggler: by some weird coincidence I made my first TS3 goth last night and started building her a gothic bachelorette pad. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

Robokitty your lighting and composition in those last pics were awesome and your creativity and timing with the sims actions and expressions was pure genius :D

Thank you missroxor, of course you can download her!

Wait til you see the sim I have in the Upload Moderation queue. I hope she gets accepted soon.

This will be fun! Good luck everyone!

Sisaly~As I suspected something major has happened to my main computer. I am unable to run the TS3 on my laptop. I don't know when the problem will be fixed. I am going to have to drop out. I am truely sorry to have to do this, as I was really enjoying this contest.

I'm very sorry to hear that easypeasey.
I too have major pc issues. My pc won't power on. So I either need a new power supply or a new pc.
My laptop is a piece of crap and I hate using it.

kopple is the next in line for fourth place, so if it's ok with everyone, I'll let him take easypeasey's place.

Don't forget to set your clocks back tonight.

Sybil Coventry
All that glitters
Is goth.

Sybil is a creative type. She loves to paint and express herself artistically, so when it comes to her fashion, she prefers to mix her black with neons in the style of a glitter goth.

Goth Bodyshothttp://www.kittyklan.com/images/screens/makeover_35.jpg



To support her artist’s lifestyle, Sybil married a wealthy billionaire. However, she will not be content to live off his pocketbook her entire life. Her lifetime wish is to see the ghost of her wealthy spouse!

Goth Headshothttp://www.kittyklan.com/images/screens/makeover_40.jpg




Her husband decided to throw a company party for Halloween, so here is Sybil getting ready for the party as a sexy Cheshire Cat. She doesn’t mind putting on a sweet smile while schmoozing all of her husband’s rich friends.

Halloween Headshothttp://www.kittyklan.com/images/screens/makeover_37.jpg


Few realize how deep Sybil’s dark streak runs. While the Halloween party was still going upstairs, Sybil snuck away into the basement. And there, amongst floating knives and candles, she began a witchcraft ritual that would seal her husband’s fate once and for all.

robokitty, I love your entry! Gorgeous colors!

My computer has been acting very finicky with me lately. I am doing my best to get enough decent looking pictures in between game crashes. :P

Sisaly
1st Nov 2009, 9:46 PM
Awesome job robokitty! I love all of the pics and the story. Nice name too.

If anyone needs an extension, I can give you 24 hours.

So my motherboard died.
It will be a while til I can make another sim. The laptop can't handle the game. :cry:
Why couldn't the damn thing wait til Feb. for our tax refund?

I'm going to try reinstalling the game while I cook dinner. :crosses fingers: My neighborhood became covered in these weird rainbow colored question marks. :cry:

If I'm the only one holding things up, don't extend the deadline on my account; I'd feel awful.

Sisaly
2nd Nov 2009, 2:20 AM
I'm extending the round until tomorrow same time so everyone else has time to submit an entry.

CisteCaise, those rainbow tiles are impossible to get rid of, so reinstalling is a good idea, but any saved games you 'saved' will still have that problem.

Devlyn Carfax

Devlyn Carfax is a graduate student at Sim State University who devotes her studies to vampire literature. She voraciously reads any vampire themed book she can get her hands on.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round4CasualBodyShot.jpg

A self-styled "childe of the night," Devlyn often wanders off to the local cemetary after spending several hours at the local goth club called The Castle. Devlyn likes to unwind by the mausoleum and uses the ambience to help her with her writings. She also has been known to go ghost hunting in the cemetary, but with little luck.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round4CasualHeeadShot.jpg

This Hallowe'en her department was all dressing up as various nursery rhyme or fairy tale characters. Devlyn whipped up a feminine, yet still dark, Little Bo Peep costume to wear to the event.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round4CostumeHeadshot.jpg

After the party, Devlyn decided that she would again visit the cemetary and muse over a theme for a new poem. After a few hours of relaxing near the crypts, Devlyn heard a strange moaning noise. She went to investigate and came face-to-face with a real spectre! Devlyn was terrified and to this day has refused to visit the cemetary alone at night.

* Apologies for the horrible writing and lackluster pictures. Reinstalling everything has been a royal pain in the you-know-what.*

CisteCaise, I love Devlyn! Nice cemetary shot.



easypeasey and LucyCat, you have 10 1/2 hours from this post. Can't wait to see them.

Oh! I didn't know I was still in it(haha)...whoops!(Ima dork) :faceslap: Sorry!

Calista was five when she and her parents were in a horrible car accident, leaving Calista not only scarred on the outside but on the inside as well. Losing both parents, Calista went to live with her mother's parents. Scared and alone, the attic at her grandparents house is where she finds solace. There in that dusty old attic is where she found an old painting of the man she knows is her soulmate...
http://i35.tinypic.com/a5eur6.jpg

Calista spends most of her days in the attic...learning witchcraft. She knows she does not belong to this time or place. She is trying to get to her love. She must learn the spell before All Hallows Eve...or he will be lost to her forever.

Soon my love...

"With the light of the flame I will light your desire, when I speak your name you will feel my fire. Through the winds of time your soul is mine. The spell has been cast. SO BE IT!"

EJ here...It will be later tonight before I can get any scores in. I can read the forums at work but can't view photos at all. I expect I can have my scores in by 2:00am or 2:30am Central Time - but probably sooner.

All righty.....I have the scores, BUT guess what? My Round results are on my now dead pc.

So thankfully I kept my PMs from the judges...so I need to add those up.

But first I need to clean some crap off this laptop to make room for PS and get laundry done and put my daughter to bed...so give me a couple of hours.

When I reveal contest results, I want it done RIGHT! LOL

Sisaly

First off I'd like thank my judges for their time. Thanks very much!
Next, I'd like to give a big hand to all the contestants for entertaining us with their fabulous entries and creativity. Without you all...there is no contest.
This was a really fun contest to host and I learned that no matter what the sim looks like, it's the person adding the details that makes the sim look great.


Now, without futher ado.......the results!!!!!


















Out of a possible 240 points......this contestant received 196 points.....















http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/sisaly/Tutorial/USMThirdPlace.jpg
















With a total of 209 out of 240 is.............

Which leaves us with our creator extraordinaire, with a total of 219 points....

Great job....EVERYONE. All of the creativity is really inspiring to see and learn from. It was a great time!
I'll be back, when I get my new computer, with a whole new contest.

You are all welcome. It was my pleasure.

I believe that boolProp......oops I mean *beeps*..... is still giving out stars for winning a contest, so PM her, robokitty, with a link to this thread.

I'm PMing you to send you your trophy made by lemoncandy. Sorry, but the sim will have to wait until I can get my old hard drive into a new pc. I had her all made and everything......but it is what it is. :(

Congratulations again and thank you everyone that entered. It was an honor. :bunny:
